Monique continues to treat many conditions such as headaches, migraines, women’s issues, musculoskeletal tightness and pain, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, rotator cuff (shoulder), bursitis,
Sciatica to name a few as well as many more health concerns. Acupuncture treats many conditions as recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO).  She can also treat many conditions using Abdominal Acupuncture (AA) which can treat many musculoskeletal problems as well as depression, anxiety, menstrual problems, and digestive problems.  AA can treat many by just using acupuncture on the abdomen to treat pain in the lower or upper body like neck pain, and headaches and knee and foot pain, as well as other conditions as noted above and many more.  Great first treatment for those who are anxious about needles, especially at the injured or painful site, AA can treat those areas via the abdomen.

She is excited to announce that she is now certified to treat clients with Qi Beauty.
